Honestly, it's one of those read-over-and-over-and-it-never-gets-any-less-funny kind of comics. *chortle*

I saw about half of it a couple of weeks ago and it prompted me to start a near-obsessive search for his work. I watched Dead or Alive in its entirety the other night, and was even more impressed. He's got a gift for portraying the shady part of Japanese society in a disturbing way that makes it alm...

duh...

I was also kinda going for a fun-house mirror effect for the whole thing.

Listen to the Phish song 'Esther' if you haven't heard it before. It was the inspiration for the top piece.

Rad: sure, feel free to mark it up. I'd appreciate any pointers. Actually, the leans were accidental in the pencil and I decided to go with them in the inking.

a few recent inks...

I am a fledgling artist... it's been a while since I posted anything. Rad Sechrist has been giving me some pointers lately, so I hope I can do his advice justice. http://www.monkfoto.com/unsorted_art/esther.jpg Yeah, 'Esther' as in the Phish song. http://www.monkfoto.com/unsorted_art/dancing_romanti...

Personally, my eye does kind-of a figure eight from bottom-left to top-right to bottom-right et cetera... bottom left is the busiest part of the piece.

I wish I could think abstractly enought to do effective collage work like this... I'd like to see a story told in this format.

These f&f comics are perfect examples of how the smallest things can greatly affect a piece. I think this has been mentioned before, but the hamster's expression is the funniest part of the strip for me. I can look at it and still giggle a little an hour later when the image pops into my head. You d...

Okay, so, um, here's the first comic I've ever done. It was inked with a crappy ball point pen with inconsistent flow and was colored in Photoshop. http://grizzlypork.ath.cx/nodes/comic/comics/Temporary%20Occupancy/strips/0001%20!%202003-11-08%20!%20Temporary%20Occupancy%20!%20Awakening.jpg Suggesti...

I am afraid this might turn into the 'let's see how violent the flight artists are' thread. I eat, um, chicken. Does that mean I don't have what it takes? Yeah, I'm tempted to just go out and buy a lot of books and supplies so I feel more official about my learnin'. I know that's not the best way to...

suggestions and inspiration

Flight Peeps: I'm new here, and I just wanted to let you all know that your work is absolutely inspiring. Searching for a creative medium in which to express myself over the years has taken me from film to photography (my major in college) to drawing, which I've just actively picked up again after a...
